Support Gender Equity​

We believe in creating opportunities for women and non-binary people to bring their leadership, talents, and stories to the forefront of the film and television industry. Your support advances the careers of thousands of women and non-binary people in film and television. When you empower underrepresented voices, you change the narrative. 


Your support:

  • Increases the visibility of women and non-binary people on screen;

  • Breaks down the financial barriers that women and non-binary people face in the film industry; and

  • Creates a safe space for women and non-binary people to learn, grow and support each other.

Support from donors like you is critical to keeping our signature film challenge free for participants; ensuring that our virtual workshop series remains donation-based for filmmakers around the world; and advancing our pilot accelerator, which catapults the careers of talented writers.

We are 501(c)3 non-profit, so all donations are tax-deductible.

— Molly McGaughey,


I was blown away by the thought and care that went in to developing the program, and I felt the lab elevated my career to the next stage by helping me build meaningful connections with industry folks.
